Filtering the MSDN Help Content

Visual Studio .NET 2003

You can use filters to target your index and keyword searches more effectively by selecting a subset of the MSDN documentation. You can copy the following filters into your MSDN collection, and you can define your own filters to further narrow your searches.

To define a custom filter

  1. From the Help menu, select Edit Filters.
  2. At the top of the Edit Help Filters pane, click New.
  3. In the Filter Definition pane, copy and paste your desired filter parameters.
  4. At the top of the Edit Help Filters pane, click Save.

    The Save Filter As dialog box appears.

  5. Enter the name for your filter and click OK.

    You can then apply the filter to the Contents, Index, or Search windows.
